Shirley is an 1849 social novel by the English novelist Charlotte Brontë. It was Brontë's second published novel after Jane Eyre (originally published under Brontë's pseudonym Currer Bell). The novel is set in Yorkshire in the period 1811–1812, during the industrial depression resulting from the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. The novel is set against a backdrop of the Luddite uprisings in the Yorkshire textile industry.

Subject: fantabulous, lovely collaborative read
chapter 31 - "Which the Genteel Reader is Recommended to Skip, Low Persons Being Here Introduced". Well excuse me! Mrs Charlotte Bell Nicholls nee Bronte. Perish the thought! not :)
I have heard far too many people complain about readers, this , that and the other thing. This is a free service and a precious one for those of us who can not afford to buy online or cd audio books. Thank you volunteers, researchers, those who give financial and equipment donations, etc, and staff at Librivox and Internet Archive

Subject: Sadly Disappointing
I found the poor quality of sound so distracting that I couldn't listen beyond chapter 7 or so. Expertise of readers varied considerably. The story itself is great.
